Happy 2021 – Kickstarting the new year with a healthy waffle recipe!!!

After all the cookies and sweets, I could use some healthy eating. If you feel the same way or if you are just looking for healthy breakfast waffles, then these are for you.

This recipe is a slight modification to our popular Gluten free oatmeal waffles. So, you know it’s gonna be good.

Healthy Banana Waffles are:

  • Easiest recipe
  • Naturally gluten free
  • No added butter or oil
  • No added sugar
  • Freezer friendly
  • Crisp and light

Main ingredients:

Oats – Old fashioned oats and not quick cooking or instant. Use gluten free oats to make gluten free waffles.

Almond butter – Use creamy almond butter (or peanut butter)

Banana – Ripe banana for natural sweetness

Eggs – Cold or room temperature

Milk – Whole or reduced fat preferably

Baking powder, cinnamon and salt – Flavoring and leavening.

How to make healthy homemade waffles?

Add oats, milk, eggs, almond butter, baking powder, cinnamon and salt into a blender and blend until smooth. Make waffles according to your waffle maker instructions.

Expert tips:

You don’t need a professional $$$ blender. Add all ingredients into any blender and blend until smooth (I have tried making half the recipe in my Nutri Bullet with great success).

Select very ripe banana for natural sweetness.

Use only old fashioned oats and NOT quick cooking or steel cuts.

The batter tends to thicken as it sits, so your last batch of waffles might be not so light as the first batch. You could stir in couple of tablespoons water for the last batch, if the batter looks too thick.

Cook waffles until they get a deep golden brown for GUARANTEED CRISPNESS! It took 5 to 6 minutes in my waffle iron.

Use gluten free oats to make gluten free waffles.

Freezing instructions:

I usually make a double batch of this recipe, place cooled waffles in a ziplock bag and freeze for several weeks. My favorite way to re heat them is to pop one or two in a bread toaster, until hot and crisp. Great for weekday mornings!

Ingredients

Equipment

Instructions

    1. Pre heat waffle iron according to manufactures instructions.

    2. In the mean time, add all ingredients into a blender and blend until smooth (it took about 2 minutes in my blender).

    3. Pour about 1/3 cup batter into each waffle plate and cook according to manufactures instructions until deep golden brown. (I cooked for 5 minutes in my waffle iron - cooking it shorter than that will yield a more beautiful golden color but does not crisp up)

    4. Remove waffles onto a plate and repeat with remaining batter. (The batter tends to thicken as it sits, so your last batch of waffles might be not so light as the first batch. You could stir in a tablespoon water for the last batch, if the batter looks too thick).

    Serve hot with maple syrup.
